Childish Gambino & cast previews his new family sitcom “Atlanta”

| March 4, 2016 | 0 Comments

In October, FX Networks announced 10 forthcoming episodes from a newly anticipated comedy series “Atlanta” starring comedian, screenplay writer and musician Childish Gambino.

The idea for the sitcom had originally surfaced mid-2014 and after being approved by FX, Gambino (formerly known as Donald Glover in his early acting career) fell from the music scene following his duo mixtape and album release STN MTN/Kauai.

Tying together the best of both worlds as a musician and actor, the Stone Mountain native plays “Earnest ‘Earn’ Marks,” a college drop-out who is remerging his rap career after leaving Atlanta and returning to witness his estranged cousin having the fame he once pursued. The black family sitcom co-stars Keith Stanfield, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Brian Tyree Henry and Zazie Beetz.

While it sounds like Gambino may be playing an antagonist with his role as Earl, he also serves as executive producer for the series, along with Paul Simms and Dianne McGunigle. Check out the FX clip of the cast and preview of the show above.
